Businesses face increasingly complex challenges associated with the management of risk worldwide.

The rise in cross-border collaboration between regulators means that incidents occurring in one jurisdiction can have consequences for your business in other regions. The speed with which legal and regulatory risks can materialise and spread requires companies to have a firm understanding of their risk exposure and ensure that robust governance, risk and compliance strategies are in place to manage and minimise risk.

Our risk advisory team leverages our extensive industry experience, drawing on the risk, governance and compliance know-how to provide in-depth knowledge of the legal and regulatory challenges facing your business. Clients benefit from our preventative risk management and compliance advice, tailored risk management strategies and in-depth guidance on emergency response preparation and crisis management solutions.

Our team understands that effective risk management requires a holistic approach that spans across areas of the law and transcends jurisdictional boundaries to ensure that processes to manage and mitigate risk are embedded in the business, its culture and working practices.

Our areas of focus include:

  • Business transformation, including artificial intelligence, blockchain, cryptocurrency, the internet and protecting data and intellectual property assets
  • Crisis management
  • Data protection, privacy and cybersecurity
  • Regulatory
  • Risk consulting
  • White-collar crime and government enforcement.
